JOHN REVEALS THE FINISH

OF THE ‘MYSTERY OF GOD’

 

 


Revelation 10:7

"But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as He hath declared unto His servants, the prophets."

 

 

What is the "Mystery of God"???

The "mystery of God" that is referred to is the "dispensation of grace." Look at the passages that mention it elsewhere in the Bible.

I Timothy 3:16

"GREAT IS THE MYSTERY OF GODLINESS, GOD WAS MANIFESTED IN THE FLESH, JUSTIFIED ...SEEN ...PREACHED ...BELIEVED ON."

Romans 16:25-26

"THE MYSTERY, KEPT SECRET SINCE THE WORLD BEGAN, BUT NOW MADE MANIFEST ...MADE KNOWN TO ALL NATIONS FOR OBEDIENCE OF FAITH."

Ephesians 6:19

"And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel."

Colossians 1:26-27

"Even the mystery which hath been hid from the ages and from generation, but now is made manifest to His saints. To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the Hope of glory."

Compare also Romans 11:25:

"For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles be come in."

Ephesians 1:5-10:

"Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ unto Himself... In Whom we have the redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace. ... Having made known unto us the mystery of His will... that in the dispensation of the fullness of times, He might gather together in one, all things in Christ."

I Corinthians 15:51:

"Behold, I show you a mystery, we shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed."

So--after this time no one will be saved to become part of the "saints" for the ‘mystery of God is finished’. This means that the end of the day of grace has come. It is at this time that the tribulation saints are resurrected. Also the 144,000 Jews are raptured. Then, after the two witnesses are resurrected and raptured at a later time, the marriage supper of the Lamb can occur in heaven because all the saints will then be in heaven.

The only ones to turn to Christ Jesus after this point will be the Jews who are hidden away in the city of Petra. They will finally realize Jesus was the One they had longed to see. The true Messiah, Jesus, will then return to save them, but they will not be given glorified bodies--for the day of grace is over. They will keep their human bodies and be ruled and reigned over by we, the saints.

This thing called ‘grace’ is the ‘mystery’... and it is a mystery to the Old Testament, to us in the New Testament period, and even up till the middle times of the seven year tribulation, it is still a mystery. Why? Why is it a mystery? Why haven’t we yet figured it out?

Grace is so abundant, so magnificent, so unmerited... and yet it is infinitely, boundlessly, immensely, unspeakably, inconceivably, and unsearchably... given to those who repent of their sins. We have not fathomed the ‘grace of God’. Mankind has no possible way to understand, how God can forgive the greatest of sins, and sinners... so wonderfully. It is a mystery... in the past, now, and in the future... for we cannot humanly understand it. Even the angels marvel as they see God pour out this mystery on those with sins abundant... and make such people to be children of God, joint heirs with Christ... and have no works that make them deserving of such.

I John 3:1

"Behold, what manner of love, the Father hath bestowed on us, that we should be called the ‘sons of God’."

Grace is unmerited favor... undeserved, free, and manifest through Jesus to mankind who accept Him.

"Grace" is from the Greek word ‘charis’, meaning ‘a favor, freely done, without claim or expectation of return or repayment.’ We cannot ever repay God what we owe Him for His gift of salvation to us. Never. Your good works after salvation do not repay, do not reimburse God for what He has given you in the ‘grace’ bestowed. Too many feel God owes them, that they have repaid God for His grace, via offerings, deeds, or change of nature..NO!!!!! NO!!!! No one has ever repaid God sufficiently, or even nearly sufficiently.

Titus 3:4-5

"But after that, the kindness and love of God our Savior toward man appeared, not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy, He saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and by the renewing of the Holy Spirit, Whom He shed on us abundantly, through Jesus Christ, our Savior."

Romans 5:2

"By Whom also we have access by faith into this grace, wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God."

Romans 5:15

"the gift of grace, which is by One man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many."

II Corinthians 9:8

"For God is able to make all grace abound toward you."

The law reveals that mankind is a failure, sinful, destitute of righteousness... unable to save oneself... unable to ever please God... and yet, the Lord has given something we cannot ever, no not ever, understand... conceive... measure... nor ever exhaust. It is ‘grace’. A mystery of God.

Grace is free... provided for all who will receive it.... makes us righteous in the sight of God... gives us peace and fellowship with God, guides us and empowers us to know the will of God, helps us bear up under trials and suffering... makes spiritual things dear to us.

Hebrews 4:16

"Let us come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help, in the time of need."

Grace is the remedy for all our sins, it is the remedy for all our sufferings, it is the greatest gift, possible... providing forgiveness, acceptance, salvation, restoration, reward, eternal life, and peace.

What are we to do with this ‘grace’??? We are made, not only recipients, of such, but we are to manage such grace, bestowing it on others...

I Peter 4:10

"As every man has received the gift, even so minister the same, one to another, as good stewards of the grace of God."

Have you been ministering grace to others??? Too many saints think they are deserving of salvation and grace, but the rest of the world are too evil, to wicked, too undeserving of the same grace... and they want to pull the ‘welcome’ mat in from the door, and sit in their ‘sanctuaries’. NOOOOOO! We did not deserve this thing called ‘grace’... and we can never comprehend it... and if we think we deserve it, but some evil wicked person who offended us, or whatever... is undeserving of it... then we are sooooo foolish. Grace is abundant, it is a mystery to all of us in its inexhaustibility for the most sinful of mankind.

 

Rev. 10:

6. And sware by Him Who liveth for ever and ever, Who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things that are therein, that there should be time no longer.

7.But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to His servants the prophets.

 

The phrase "TIME NO LONGER" (Rev. 10:5-7) means that there will no longer be any delay. It would better be translated by "Delay no longer."

For time does not cease here, how could it? There are 1260 days to go until the battle of Armageddon, there are days of judgment, there are 1000 years of millennial rule for Jesus. So how can time have ceased to exist??? It is the "delay" of God that ceases here.

God, at that time in Revelation, has finished here what the Bible calls the "MYSTERY OF GOD." For in Rev. 10:7, we see that it is "THE MYSTERY OF GOD SHOULD BE FINISHED."

The "mystery of God" that is referred to is the "dispensation of grace." So--after this time no one will be saved to become part of the "saints."

It is at this time that the tribulation saints are resurrected. Also the 144,000 Jews are raptured. Then, after the two witnesses are resurrected and raptured at a later time, the marriage supper of the Lamb can occur in heaven because all the saints will then be in heaven.

The only ones to turn to Christ Jesus after this point will be the Jews who are hidden away in the city of Petra. They will finally realize Jesus was the One they had longed to see. The true Messiah, Jesus, will then return to save them, but they will not be given glorified bodies--for the day of grace is over. They will keep their human bodies and be ruled and reigned over by we, the saints.
